• NY-based congressman wants to ban online sports betting ads

    February 28, 2023 New York Flag State - Casino Genie

    A member of congress is looking to set the wheels in motion on a bill which, if implemented, would place a ban on all online advertising for sports betting sites across the US. The detail of the bill would take its cue from the laws that were implemented in the 1980s and 90s to curtail cigarette advertising. If New York-based representative Paul Tonko is successful in his efforts, then there could be a significant impact on the betting industry a

  • Massachusetts sports betting goes live, but not completely… yet

    February 23, 2023 Massachusetts State Flag - Casino Genie

    After years of trying, Massachusetts passed a bill to legalize sports betting last summer, and after six months, it has seen the first bets placed legally in the state. It has been one of the more sedate launches so far, due in no small part because the Bay State is taking a two-track approach to its launch. The sports betting bill led to the foundation of the Read More

  • Minnesota joins list of states looking to legalize sports betting

    February 21, 2023 Minnesota State Flag - Casino Genie

    2022 saw a number of states either vote to legalize sports betting, or implement legislation that had already passed, and in that regard was more or less the busiest year the sports betting industry has had since the 2018 repeal of PASPA. If 2023 continues at the pace it is going, though, it may well outstrip last year, with Minnesota adding its name to the list of states seeking to p

  • New Hampshire to legalize online betting?

    February 17, 2023 New Hampshire State Flag - Casino Genie

    There is a more than decent chance that after a handful of US states have their say on online sports betting, the total of jurisdictions permitting it will rise above 40 in 2023, or at least by the beginning of 2024. With 36 US states already offering legalized wagering on sports, and Missouri, Vermont and Texas all debating the possibility, the New England state of New Hampshire could also be about to take action that will allow its residents to

  • Super Bowl LVII expected to be most-bet event in US sporting history

    February 15, 2023 cg-withdrawals

    The pundits, the neutrals and anyone with a connection to the Kansas City Chiefs will have agreed that the 57th Super Bowl was one of the greatest in history, and while Philadelphia fans will struggle to agree, this is one that will long be remembered for staying competitive. That’s something title games have often lacked in the past, and there are probably at least a few people who weren’t overjoyed about how close the game was. Among them w

  • Texas’ most famous gambler doesn’t want legal betting in Texas

    February 13, 2023 Texas State Flag - Casino Genie

    His name is Jim McIngvale, although his friends know him as “Mack” and the state of Texas knows him as “Mattress Mack”. Famous in part for selling furniture to householders in the Lone Star State, McIngvale has gained even wider fame as one of the most opportunistic gamblers in the United States. His 2022 gamble, where he placed $10 million at various sportsbooks and won to the tune of $75 million when his hometown Houston Astros won the

  • Hawaii sports betting “dead for another year”

    February 9, 2023 Hawaii State Flag - Casino Genie

    As one of only two US states with absolutely no officialized legal betting, the possibility of Hawaii passing a law to permit sports wagering was always a long shot (pardon the pun). A bill introduced in the state’s House of Representatives was brought before the house committee on economic development, and swiftly shelved earlier this week, and the signs are that there will be no further attempts to legislate in 2023. So it appears that any ch

  • Missouri looks at sports betting again: Is 2023 the year?

    February 7, 2023 Missouri State Flag - Casino Genie

    It’s time again for Missouri to bring forward a bill on sports betting. The state has seen failed attempts to legalize online betting in each of the last two years, and in 2022 saw neighboring Kansas pass a bill at the first attempt. Now, with the legislative session just warming up, another attempt is being made to make Missouri what would be the 37th US state to pass legislation to regulate sports betting. This time, the mood is cautiously op

  • Texas sports betting bill introduced – Could betting companies get their “white whale”?

    February 3, 2023 Texas State Flag - Casino Genie

    With approximately three quarters of the states in America now having legal sports betting, the feeling has been that we’re down to a very few states that may be on the fence. After California rejected betting at the ballot box in November, much of the attention simply bounced back onto the Golden State in the assumption that it was the largest state that could realistic

  • Vermont Sports Betting bill presented to Congress

    February 1, 2023 Vermont State Flag - Casino Genie

    It’s been widely assumed, and now it’s a fact: There will be an attempt to legalize online sports betting in Vermont this year. The expectation became reality on February 2 as state representative Matthew Birong introduced House Bill 127, which would create a legal framework to permit sports betting through between two and six online providers, while ring-fencing some of the profits to go towards harm mitigation. The bill is expected to pass,
